Cybiko Xtreme

The Cybiko was a hand-held computer introduced in May 2000 by Cybiko Inc. It was designed for teens and featured its own two-way radio text messaging system. Over 430 "official" freeware games and applications were available. It features a QWERTY keyboard designed to be used with a stylus. An MP3 player add-on was made for the unit as well as a SmartMedia card reader. The company stopped manufacturing the units after two product versions and only a few years on the market. Cybikos can communicate with each other up to a maximum range of 300 metres. Several Cybikos can chat with each other in a wireless chatroom.

The Cybiko Xtreme was the second-generation Cybiko handheld. It featured various improvements over the original Cybiko, such as a faster processor, more RAM, more ROM, a new operating system, a new keyboard layout and case design, greater wireless range, a microphone, improved audio output, and smaller size.
